January 7 Harman announced the release of a new set of true wireless sport earbuds. The JBL Reflect Mini NC TWS is a perfect fit for an active lifestyle according to Harman. In addition to receiving a CES 2021 Innovation Award, the JBL Reflect Mini NC TWS brings Active Noise Cancelling to the REFLECT series for the first time.
The Active Noise Cancelling comes with a Smart Ambient mode which lets listeners focus on their goals with zero distractions. In addition, the Smart Ambient mode will let users go outside and still be able to be aware of their surroundings.
The new true wireless sports buds will have a more compact design compared to previous models, and they have adjustable ear-fins for a more comfortable fit. The new model also comes with an IPX7 waterproof design and up to 21 hours of playtime. Perfect for long workout sessions.
The JBL Reflect Mini NC TWS comes in a choice of three colors and has a reflective JBL logo. The new true wireless sport earbuds will be available in blue, white, and black. In addition, consumers will get Dual Connect + Sync technology with Bluetooth 5.0.
This will enable Fast Pair and allows either bud to be used independently for music or calls. Users will now have the flexibility to make hands-free calls, access a voice assistant with a finger tap, or listen to music in either ear.
The new JBL Reflect Mini NC TWS earbuds are also designed for ease of use. They have an embedded sensor in the charging case to allow the earbuds to pair automatically with a device when the case is opened. This will work similarly to Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Live.
New JBL Reflect Mini NC TWS earbuds are feature-packed
When a user removes the buds from their ears music will automatically pause, and mics on the buds enable perfect stereo calls.
The full list of features for the upcoming buds is a nice list. With 7 hours of music playback (21 hours when combined with USB-C charging case) users can listen all day. The premium 6mm dynamic drivers featuring JBL signature sound, Active Noise Canceling with Smart Ambient will deliver great sound.
The adjustable ear-fin offers a secure fit so they don’t fall out during your workout. Customers will also get built-in voice capabilities with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
For those who love to work out, the buds also have an IPX7 waterproof and sweatproof rating. Reflective accents will help anyone jogging at night. The hands-free stereo calls with auto-pause make controlling playback simple and easy. Rounding out the features are Dual Connect + Sync (for independent earbud use), Google Fast Pair, and compatibility with My JBL Headphones App.
The JBL Reflect Mini NC TWS received a CES 2021 “Best of Innovation Honoree” award. With the award, the buds join three other JBL true wireless headphones which were awarded as well. The new buds will be available for purchase from JBL.com starting Spring 2021 for a retail price of $149.95.
